Alberto Seveso is an illustrator and digital artist from Sardinia, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean sea south of Italy. His love of graphic design started with skate decks and music cover album art for metal bands. He wanted to know how to reproduce such artworks and started exploring on his own, playing with colors and textures. He also introduced high speed photography into his designs.
“I had a computer in my home as early as the Commodore Vic20 and I knew it could be useful in some way. I mean I can use my computer to make art and not only to play.”
Alberto is completely self-taught. “I did it to just have fun. I did not expect it to become a profession. I am very interested in people’s faces and expressions. In a way, I give them a new face. I start with black and then add vector elements. In a way, the face sort of creates itself.”
Alberto now lives in Bristol, UK working as a freelance artist. His clients have included Adobe, Nike, ESPN, Sony and many individual musicians and bands.
